Compared to the rest of the Focus family, the Active models have an enhanced exterior look, with crossover-like styling cues. Plastic cladding, different bumpers and grille, roof rails, skid plates, new alloy wheel choices and jacked-up suspension set them apart.

Inside, users will find Active scuff plates, high-bolstered seats with Active cloth trim and blue stitching, special floor mats, leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear selector, and other tweaks. Ford’s SYNC3 infotainment system is present, with an 8-inch touchscreen display, voice control, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The FordPass Connect 4G Wi-Fi hotspot will be available for a monthly fee.

Changes also go beyond the visual spectrum, as the 2019 Ford Focus Active gets a modified chassis and two additional driving modes. Joining Normal, Sport and Eco, they are called Slippery and Trail, and help improve the car’s traction on snow, ice, sand and mud.
